Mountain Movers Choose Chevrolet

Ever wonder how the venues of action sport competitions like the Winter Dew Tour, the Winter X Games, and the World Snowboard Championships happen?

Well, the answer is Snow Park Technologies.

With the help of Chevrolet, Snow Park Technologies has designed and built over 250 competition courses.

This spring, you will witness a documentary of the behind-the-scenes real-life drama of these builds in the new National Geographic Channel TV series, Mountain Movers.

“Snow Park Technologies works in the most remote locations under extreme conditions, exactly the type of programming NatGeo is famous for,” said award-winning television producer for Good Clean Fun Jason Carbone. “From avalanche control to building a half-pipe in blizzard conditions, Mountain Movers is going to take the viewer to locations and place them in experiences that are truly one of a kind.”

Viewers will travel with Snow Park Technologies to California, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, and even the East Coast.

Snow Park Technologies hauls the equipment and machinery necessary to move tons of snow in the harshest conditions. And, that is heavy duty work.

ESPN Winter X Games course designer and owner and president of Snow Park Technologies Chris “Gunny” Gunnarson said that his favorite part is his 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD Dually.

“I know Chevy trucks can handle the heavy duty work we do, and in the nastiest environments a mountain can offer because I use them every day,” said Gunnarson.

Local Elkhart Indiana dealership, Tom Naquin, looks forward to see the capabilities of the Chevrolet Silverado in the series this spring.
